A sonnet I wrote in my English Literature class that's written in Iambic Pentameter (10 syllables per line). I tried to do it how Shakespeare would, using the same method :) It goes:
First Quatrain: Introduce a theme
Second Quatrain: Explain further
Third Quatrain: A twist

I wrote this monologue as part of my English coursework and honestly I love it...partly because it got me an A* but then again I love the work of Shakespeare. :)
BTW I'm quite proud of the last two paragraphs because they are in iambic pentameter.
This came from an essay I had to write about Macbeth. We were supposed to write as many quotes from the drama as possible into one short story. This is mine, slightly on the messed up side, but hey, I like it that way.
This is an analysis of Shakespeare's play Macbeth. It discusses whether Macbeth was a weak man whose actions were influenced by others and thus he cannot be considered a tragic hero. Just something I did for school :)

This was a poem I had written a year ago, and I had finished acting out a scene from Macbeth where the three witches were brewing something in their cauldron. I had a bit of inspiration and just kinda wrote whatever. And just so you know, the word 'Drab' was an old English term referring to a...
I wrote this while half asleep. I must admit, the idea of writing about insanity has always appealed, but I never intended to let it go as far as it did. When I re-read it, I really was a little creeped out. But the more I read it, the more I liked it. I hope you will too.
